Smiths Launches Ultraviolet Light Upgrade Kits for Checkpoint Baggage Trays

Smiths Detection has announced the launch of its ultraviolet (UVC) light kits capable of destroying up to 99.9% of micro-organisms present on baggage trays at the security checkpoint. This will improve hygiene standards and will help airports to restore the confidence of travellers and staff during and after the COVID-19 pandemic. Smiths’ UVC kits automatically disinfect trays as they are being transported from the reclaim area back to the divest station. The casing and other safety measures protect staff and passengers from exposure to the UVC lights and can be installed quickly and easily into existing tray handling systems.
